ALLISON PASCHKE Hypatia porcelain, gold ink
"Hypatia" Touch and Listen
porcelain, gold ink

Hypatia was an interactive installation comprised of more than 3,000 hand-made porcelain elements ranging in size from 1/8” to 11” tall. Visitors were invited to make new configurations and to create a variety of sounds by moving pieces around on the concrete floor. It took up approximately 1500 square feet in an industrial site in Pawtucket RI. Ancient scripts that have never been deciphered were drawn onto pyramid-shaped elements in gold ink. Wooden boxes from the same time period and region as the building added an additional element.
